Where are the body?
Where are the body?
dont dug up too much friend until june 01
Hi everyone here
Today I worked with my friend (owner of detector E-Trac). We dug in a ravine where he dug up the stamp sapper Group http://warrelics.eu/forum/military_p...k-p1020291.jpg .
For me this is a new place and new finds
When we arrived at place of excavation I immediately found hole of military rubbish.
A lot tin cans, bottles and tubes of toothpaste. Also, I found the Soviet & Polish coins, the cover of a pocket watch (the inscription of the South-Don Railway № 37) and other...
My friend found an interesting piece of aluminum (this is curtain of a carbide lamp)
This curtain of a carbide lamp. German soldiers made a tag of this piece of aluminum. On the surface there are words:
Interesting, is not it?

Also I found the keys. This finding a surprise to me . Car keys (I think so) from GM. What you think, this is old keys or it was make after the WW2?
The keys are period. Briggs & Stratton produced ignition systems for many American manufacturers and associated automobile/truck manufacturers before, during and after the war.
These could well be the ignition starter keys for an Opel Blitz 3 tonne truck. Opel was part of the General Motors group back then, as it still is today.

Once again you've made some wonderful finds. I like the toothpaste tubes and the modified carbide lamp shutter, if only they could talk what stories they'd tell. The keys are interesting finds, they could be from an American supplied lorry (I note they say made in USA) could they have been used by the Russian forces?.
As an aside I heard that after the war General Motors successfully sued the American Government for destruction of their plants in Germany by bombing. I dont know how much the US Government had to pay out for the damage but its amazing GM got anything.
Frits Gross? I think its a German Double S
